I think there (are) a lot more questions than answers at this point and I would hope that in addition to the auditor general of HRM being involved, that the provincial auditor general would go into Trade Centre Ltd., which is arm’s-length from the city. HRM’s audit and finance committee report says it can’t get the detailed information out of Trade Centre because it’s a provincial Crown corporation. The city can’t get that, but the (provincial) auditor general can. I hope that there’s a full investigation of all the parties involved so we can get to the bottom of what happened to the money.
